Creative Card Crew Challenge 10 - GDT

Challenge 10 with the Creative Card Crew has been set by the lovely Joey and she says MINIMAL and I very much doubt if I could have minimised anymore.



What!!! Only one piece of backing paper and even kept my ribbon minimal as I used my punch and weaved it through so as not to show too much and ran my main card through the Swiss Dots folder. I have tried to keep my combo to only two shades too and my gorjuss girl has been coloured with my now beloved Prisma´s.


I have received these super awards and apologise for not displaying them sooner, life goes so fast at times and I do appreciate you all for thinking of me. My friends all have wonderful blogs full of inspiration so I recommend you sit back with a cuppa and browse their creations.

Thank you so much Poppy, Susie, Vicki and Glenda


Thank you for both of these Vicki you´re a star and I look forward to working with you.

Thanks a million Maxine I love this ladybug.
